On January 21st, 2014, anarchist comrade Tamara Sol Farías Vergara was arrested in Santiago of Chile, accused of having carried out an armed attack against a security guard of BancoEstado that took place the same day in the bank branch located at the junction of Alameda avenue with Las Rejas street.
On January 22nd, the comrade appeared in court and was put in pretrial detention, charged with stealing the gun of said security guard and causing him grievous bodily harm. The investigation will be completed within 60 days, and she faces from 10 years and 1 day, to lifetime in prison.
Given the seriousness of the situation and the media hysteria launched against Sol but also her family, members of which have been assassinated by dogs of the Pinochet regime, we are calling for active solidarity with the comrade, and also draw attention to the necessity of avoiding to reproduce the enemy’s propaganda, meaning the Press, coppers, and judges.
